These activities are essential for research, equipment performance verification tests, personnel training, and the disposal of obsolete ammunition. Unfortunately, persons who reside nearby are subjected to side effects in the form of noise, vibrations, and occasionally, property damage.

The claim is them processed through a procedure which leads to final settlement. This report is concerned with describing the major facets of the technical review process which has been instituted to develop an opinion as to Army responsibility.
